    I am not sure how old this machine is. It was my mothers she had given it to me along time ago but I never really took it out to look at it. It needs cleaned which my hubby is doing. I am wondering if anyone could tell me if they can guess how old this is and where I can get a manual or something on it. the number on the plate on front of machine down on right side is G0342334 that is all I know. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    It is on this page and is on page 34 of the chart. It is a 1923 model. Hope this helps.

    Make sure you use the number as it is printed on your machine. You have to have that zero in there. Good luck on finding parts.

    This is the wrong one as hers as a 0 before the 34. The right one is on page 37.

    Model 15s have the tension dial on the faceplate... this looks more like a 99 to me...off to try to find the serial number!

    It's a model 99, made 1923/1924... serial number was alloted on Sept 6,1923.

    Yep it is a Singer 99, and its a really nice one at that!! It uses the Class 66 bobbins and the 15x1 needles I will PM you a link to the manual for it. Or if you want I can email you the parts list and owners manual for the machine. I carry everything you could ever want for this machine and it is is stock right now.

    I added this to the Virtual Section so if you want to subscribe the the Vintage Sewing machine VS go to the user defined area and subscribe to it and you will see the section on the main page of the forum.

    You will really enjoy the machine and I am so glad that you posted the photos of it!

    I have purchased parts for my old Singer on eBay for good prices. Another knowledgeable person is Lloyd Askew in Anaheim. I don't have his email addy right now, but you can Google him. He is very helpful.
